More About This Book

Overview

There exists a race of cannibals who are made out of candy. They live in an underground world filled with lollipop forests and gumdrop goblins. During the day, while you are away at work, they come above ground and prowl our streets for food. Their prey: your children. They lure young boys and girls to them with their sweet scent and bright colorful candy coating, then rip them apart with razor sharp teeth and claws. When he was a child, Franklin Pierce witnessed the death of his siblings at the hands of a candy woman with pink cotton candy hair. Since that day, the candy people have become his obsession. He has spent his entire life trying to prove that they exist. And after discovering the entrance to the underground world of the candy people, Franklin finds himself venturing into their sugary domain. His mission: capture one of them and bring it back, dead or alive.

Cannibals of Candyland is an erotic horror story for the bizarro reader. Dark, disturbing, and absurd; this isn't the board game version of candy land you used to play as a kid.

    Sometimes you want to sit down and savour a literary meal, to indulge
    yourself in a four-course door-stopper of a novel that leaves you
    feeling comfortably bloated at satiated at the end. Then again,
    sometimes you just want to grab a narrative snack, to guiltily devour
    the sugary goodness of a candy-coated novella, preferably one that
    leaves you feeling just a little bit sick as you force down that last
    bite. The Cannibals of Candyland is that perfect candy-coated treat.
    Here we have an entire race of cannibalistic beings who have evolved
    from candy, in a land made of candy, surrounded by homes made of candy.
    It's a world where taste and smell trump physical appearance every time,
    where mates are taken for life, and where your original candy coating
    provides proof of virginity. There's no flesh in Candyland, just an
    infinite number of variations upon candy cotton hair, gumdrop eyes,
    marshmallow breasts, licorice limbs, and rock-candy teeth. Actually,
    there is a tiny bit of flesh in Candyland - all of it belonging to
    children stolen from the human world. After all, even people made of
    candy know that you can't live on candy alone. Before we get to
    Candyland, though, we need to backtrack a bit. The story opens with a
    rather peculiar gentleman by the name of Franklin Pierce. He's a man
    with two wives (one of whom is his mother), both of whom revel in the
    opportunity to publicly cuckold him. He's a man with a flawed cybernetic
    brain, guaranteed to breakdown and drive him insane within the next few
    years. He's also a man who devoted his entire life to proving the
    existence of the candy people, ever since he watched them eat his
    siblings years ago. I won't spoil the story by going into too much
    detail, but this is very much an Alice in Wonderland type story, except
    that Franklin goes through the candy dish instead of the looking glass.
    There is falls victim to a kind of Stockholm syndrome that sees him
    partially eaten, reconstructed with candy, and forcefully mated by the
    very same candy woman who ate his siblings. It's a rather twisted tale
    of the extent to which one man will go to ensure his revenge, but also a
    surprisingly sweet tale of the love to be found in the oddest flavours.
    A quick read, filled with just enough sugary gore to delight even the
    most perverse of readers, it's a book that more than delivers on the
    promise of its concept.
